    Mr. Berg’s April Students of the Month

    The “Best of the Class” award is a huge “THANK YOU” from Mr. Berg to you for doing such a great job.

    Every class does a warm-up routine each time they come to PE class. This warm-up routine consists of sit-ups, push-ups, stretching, and running. The students perform a set amount of repetitions given by the teacher, Mr. Berg, for each exercise.  Mr. Berg chooses one student, at the end of each month, from each grade level as the “BEST” exerciser in their class.

    Being the “BEST” does not always mean that they run the fastest or do the most sit-ups, rather it is an indication of how much effort they put into their warm-up routine. This award also means that they take their exercise time seriously and do not bother other students during this time. Every teacher loves to see students putting 100% effort into what they do!

    JB takes Finance Park online!

    JB Young 8th graders are now completing their Junior Achievement Finance Park training online.  Through partnership with JA leadership, these 8th grade Jaguars are able to use their Google Chromebooks and building-wide wireless connections to explore budgeting, the stock market, paying bills, and other essentials of financial literacy they will need as they enter adulthood. After creating a personalized avatar, students are given a simulated life scenario consisting of educational background, job title, yearly salary, and family situation.  The program has been highly engaging to students as they lead their character through a world where financial literacy is required for success.
